  2. Aria: "Merkt und hört, ihr Menschenkinder" ("Mark and hear, you sons of mankind") - for basso and continuo.
  3. Recitative: "Dies hat Gott klar mit Worten" ("This God has clearly [provided] with words") - for tenor and continuo.
  4. Aria: "Des Vaters Stimme ließ sich hören" ("The Father's voice can be heard") - for tenor, two solo violins and continuo.
  5. Recitative: "Als Jesus dort nach seinen Leiden" ("As Jesus there, after his Passion") - for bass, strings and continuo.
  6. Aria: "Menschen, glaubt doch dieser Gnade" ("People, believe this grace now") - for alto, oboes d'amore, strings and continuo.
  7. Chorale: "Das Aug allein das Wasser sieht" ("The eye sees only water") - the last verse of the chorale, sung and played by the whole ensemble.
